I may be missing something, but I still don't see a great difference in a bodywieight super slow movement that ends at failure and an Isometric hold. If you are doing super slow pushups, your last...

Yep, actually the first set fails at 31, the second at 28. Remember, these are the palms facing in variety, a little easier than palms out. I've always been good at these going all the...

I must admit that I have "cheated" a bit on Transformetrics by doing some static holds as a part of my Iso workout. The danger in this and in your suggestion, for me anyway, is in the lowering...
